Religious and spiritual poem, the writer aspiring poet Peter Menkin introduces the work with these words on his Peter Menkin blog: "What I have noticed this winter, as we near spring, is bare trees. Recently, they remind me of the spareness of Lent and its beauty. Here is a new poem about this Lent."
A simple, direct style says that we live in a friendly universe, so it implies, and that creation is good. These words end the poem:
other days the light--
the daily day offers time. It is a surrounding
experience, penitence. Ever even so small an offer,
there is the reminder that we have time
to come back. To turn, to turn, to turn.
